Socialism Failed, Capitalism is Bankrupt. What comes Next?

Austrian artist Oliver Ressler makes provocative works about power relationships in contemporary society. Here's part of one work -- a 19-minute film he made in Bangladesh, a street market in Yerevan, Armenia in 2010.

"Mobilization goes hand-in-hand with projecting a utopia," Ressler says in his bio. Interesting stuff.

(praise be Andrea for cluing me in.)

Hi, I am a student at the University of Miami and thinking of conducting research into the black market and possible influences in foreign policy. Do you have any suggestions for research? Your feedback is much appreciated and I personally love your work!
